A 29-year-old Texas woman has been sentenced to death for the October 2020 murder of a pregnant woman in order to extract and steal her unborn child.
Taylor Parker’s conviction was handed down Wednesday in Texas, after a trial that began in September and lasted weeks, according to documents released by the court.
Taylor Parker has been misleading her lover and relatives for months that she is pregnant, and has been showing her fake pregnancy in social media posts, even buying a bulging silicone belly. However, in fact, she was unable to bear children because of the removal of her uterus.
On October 9, 2020, Parker Reagan Simmons visited Hancock, a 21-year-old woman who was in her final months of pregnancy, and stabbed her more than 100 times before opening her stomach to take the fetus, then leaving the house where the three-year-old daughter of the victim slept in one of the rooms.
Parker was arrested while driving her car with the fetus on her knees about 15 kilometers from the scene of the crime, and confirmed that she had given birth to a newborn.

The child who was hospitalized could not survive.
During Parker’s trial hearings in the small city of New Boston, east of Dallas, police said that weeks before the crime, the perpetrator had been spotting pregnant women in specialized stores or maternity hospitals.
Parker took appointments at some clinics and was seen there. Shortly before the crime was committed, Parker watched a large number of videos showing natural and caesarean deliveries.
